Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Jordan Archer, currently on loan from Spurs, was attacked by a Gillingham in the dying minutes of a League Two clash between the two sides at Priestfield Stadium last night.

Archer, 19, was dithering while placing the ball for a goal kick when a lout from the Rainham End managed to get onto the pitch and appeared to jump on the back of the goalkeeper.

The pitch invader was quickly tackled by a couple of stewards before being dragged off.

Jordan Archer was not pleased, had a few words, kicked the ball away and was then booked for time-wasting.

Wycombe were able to hold on to their lead though and secured a 1-0 away win, thanks to an 85th minute goal from Matthew McClure.

Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth told Sky Sports:

There are silly people sometimes at football grounds.

They give the rest of the Gillingham fans a bad name.

I know Jordan, he’s a tough lad. I don’t want to comment on it too much but everyone’s OK.
